Coarse Sea Salt from Brittany is highly concentrated so use only one third the quantity called for in a recipe or one third of the quantity of regular table salt that you would normally use. Sel Gris (also called Celtic gray salt) comes from the de Guerande region, on France’s Atlantic coast. Harvested in shallow basins that are flooded with ocean water.
The task of harvesting this organic sea salt is done entirely by hand using traditional Celtic methods (wooden rakes). No mechanical machinery is ever used and no metal ever touches the salt. Nothing is added and nothing is removed. This time consuming and labor-intensive process produces a superior sea salt.
Sel Gris means “Grey Salt” in French. This is a premium natural, solar-dried sea salt. This salt is truly unrefined, unbleached, and has had nothing added to it. Most people find it has a much softer and fresher flavor that ordinary table salt. This salt comes as a coarse grey salt and stone ground. It is a moist salt that needs to be hand sprinkled into dishes.
The Sea Salt packet measures 12cm wide x 3cm tall x 14cm long
